Featured Report: Acetaldehyde Production from Acetylene (Vapor-Phase Hydration)

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Acetaldehyde production from acetylene. The process examined is a typical vapor phase acetylene hydration over solid catalyst. In this process, steam is generated and mixed with acetylene. The gaseous stream is fed to fixed bed reactors in parallel, where acetylene is hydrated to form acetaldehyde. The excess of water in the reactor product is partially condensed and returned to the reactor. The gaseous stream is transferred to distillation units that recover unreacted acetylene for reuse and generate the purified acetaldehyde product.
